Associated Press. Open tennis tournament in New York, Associated Press. The Vatican is loaning some of its most beautiful liturgical vestments, jeweled miter caps and historic papal tiaras for an upcoming exhibit on Catholic influences in fashion at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. ROME -- She has sat next to royalty both Hollywood and real, often donning her trademark dark sunglasses to block the glare from the catwalks of the world's fashion capitals. Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour had a front-row seat of a different sort Monday, on hand for a sneak preview of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's spring exhibit of the Costume Institute, which will feature 40 vestments and liturgical accessories from the Vatican.
Wintour joined Donatella Versace and the Vatican's culture minister, Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, for a Roman launch of the exhibit, featuring a few of the Vatican treasures - five bejeweled miters, papal tiaras and a golden-threaded papal cape - that will soon be sent off to New York.
She seemed to have coordinated her outfit with Ravasi, donning a red and black velvet tunic dress for the posh Met launch at the Palazzo Colonna, a onetime papal residence in downtown Rome. It was her latest high-profile photo op, after she had a seat of honor next to Queen Elizabeth II during London Fashion Week earlier this month. On Monday, amid the papal pomp and Baroque splendor of Palazzo Colonna, Wintour's sunglasses were nowhere to be seen.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Just Desserts: Martha Stewart: The Unauthorized Biography comes a scrupulously researched investigative biography that tells the inside story of Anna Wintour's incredible rise to power From her exclusive perch front row center, glamorous Voguemagazine editor in chief Anna Wintour is the most powerful and influential style-maker in the world.
Anna Wintour's Strangest Fashion Week Seatmates - PAPER
Behind her trademark sunglasses and under the fringe of her Louise Brooks bob she determines whether miniskirts are in or out, whether or not it's politically correct to wear fur. She influences designers, wholesalers, and retailers globally from Seventh Avenue to the elegant fashionista enclaves of L'Avenue Montaigne and Via della Spiga.
In the U. And every month millions of women-and men-read Vogue, and are influenced by the pages of the chic and trendy style wish-book that she has controlled with an iron hand in a not-always-so-velvet glove since fighting her way to the most prestigious job in fashion journalism. Anna Wintour's fashion influence extends to celebrities and politicians: because of it, Hillary Clinton underwent a drastic makeover and became the first First Lady to strike a pose on the cover of Vogue in the midst of Monicagate; Oprah Winfrey was forced to go on a strict diet before Wintour would put her on Vogue's cover.
Now in her mid-fifties, as she nears her remarkable second decade at the helm of Vogue, comes this revealing biography that will shock and surprise both Anna's fans and detractors alike.
Based on scores of interviews, Front Row unveils the Anna Wintour even those closest to her don't know. Oppenheimer chronicles this insecure and creative powerhouse's climb to the top of the bitchy, competitive fashion magazine world, showing up close, as never before exposed, how she artfully crafted and reinvented herself along the way. She's been called many things-"Nuclear Wintour," by the British press, "cold suspicious and autocratic, a vision in skinniness," by Grace Mirabella, the editor she dethroned at Vogue, and the "Devil" by those who believe she's the inspiration for a recent bestselling novel written by a former assistant.
